It depends there are many different IDE's and compilers, out there and it is a matter of preference as well as what OS you are using. For example if you are running a Mac then you need to find a Mac specific IDE. Personally I use Dev-C++,it is free,simple, runs on Windows, and the compiler is mostly standard, but again it is a matter of preference.

Anyways good luck in learning C++,I think you will find it relatively easy to get to understand, but if you need any help you can always ask me.:)

I'm interested in learning C++ too. Can you post some tips later on?

We're stuck with C# at school. It's basically Microsoft-proprietary Java. ugh

Yeah, I don't really like C# either.

Hey i have a c++ book and the starting is different in the book we still use the iostream and stuff but it has voidmain() which dosent work in this c++ so what do i use for this c++? Thank you

This is because the C++ standard main() is of integer type not of [B]void[/B] type. Your book uses Microsoft's version of the main(), which is of course not standard and will [I]only work[/I] in compilers made by Microsoft say Microsoft Visual Studio, which I believe you must buy after a trial period. You can still use your book however replace:

[CODE]void main()
{
//Some code.....
}

[/CODE]

with:

[CODE]int main()
{
//Some code....
return 0;
}[/CODE]
